Description:

Fundamentals of Biochemistry: Life at the Molecular Level by Donald Voet, Charlotte W. Pratt, Judith G. Voet pdf free download.

Voet and Pratt’s 4th Edition of Principles of Biochemistry: Life at the Molecular Level, challenges readers to better understand the chemistry behind the biological structure and reactions occurring in living systems. The latest edition continues this tradition, and additionally incorporates coverage of recent research and an expanded focus on preparing and supporting students throughout the course. WileyPLUS sold separately from text.

About the Cover

The molecular details of life tell a story that starts with the information in DNA and proceeds through many steps to protein function, such as ATP synthesis. We want students to become familiar with this story by delving into the chemical details of cellular structure and metabolic function, by learning how to explore molecular images such as those shown on the cover, and by seeing the relationships—sometimes circular—that link one topic to another. Throughout FUNDAMENTALS OF BIOCHEMISTRY, FOURTH EDITION, you’ll find guidance—specific features that enhance student learning—to help you find your way through the biochemical details and enjoy the story.

The images arranged in a circle on the cover of this textbook are part of that story, symbolizing the pathway through which hereditary information is expressed. Clockwise from twelve o’clock: DNA; the nucleosome; DNA polymerase I in complex with DNA; RNase P in complex with tRNA; the ribosome in complex with three tRNAs; and F1–ATPase. These images are based on X-ray structures that were respectively determined by Richard Dickerson and Horace Drew, Caltech; Gerard Bunick, University of Tennessee; Thomas Steitz, Yale University; Alfonso Mondragón, Northwestern University; Venki Ramakrishnan, MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, U.K.; and Andrew Leslie and John Walker, MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, U.K. –This text refers to the Loose Leaf edition.

Genetics: From Genes to Genomes pdf free download by Leland Hartwell, Leroy Hood, Michael Goldberg, Ann Reynolds, Lee Silver

Description:

Genetics: From Genes to Genomes pdf free download by Leland Hartwell, Leroy Hood, Michael Goldberg, Ann Reynolds, Lee Silver.

Genetics: From Genes to Genomes is a cutting-edge, introductory genetics text authored by an unparalleled author team, including Nobel Prize winner, Leland Hartwell. The 5th edition continues to build upon the integration of Mendelian and molecular principles, providing students with the links between the early understanding of genetics and the new molecular discoveries that have changed the way the field of genetics is viewed.
Users who purchase Connect Plus receive access to the full online ebook version of the textbook as well as SmartBook.

Compared to the previous edition of Hartwell Genetics, this version is leaps and bounds of improvement. About 3 years ago I took a course using the old edition and felt like there was a rigid change in the material from Mendelian genetics to the molecular details of the field. Practical details about lab techniques often seemed like sidenotes rather than keys to the text. Also, chapters were disjoint as they jumped from historical perspective to modern techniques. In this new edition, I can see how much the readability of the text has improved! The organized layout of chapters has a clear ebb and flow to it. Starting with a short overview of the field in chapter 1, this textbook lets students know the scope of the field of genetics before delving into the text. From evolutionary biology to clinical applications, this book is chock-full of examples that detail the practical benefits of the field. Each chapter is laid out in a clear format with great illustrations and examples. The practice questions are challenging (not impossible) and endow the student with a perspective about the greater context of the field. Each chapter prepares you for the end-of-chapter questions, but puts the general tenants of the chapter in a variety of contexts, promoting learning. This edition does a much better job of integrating the history of Darwinian, Mendelian, molecular, and population genetics ideas (i.e. Sewall Wright) with practical techniques like pedigree analysis, PCR, gel electrophoresis, and cloning. Overall, I would say this text is a great introductory genetics text that has vastly improved from the previous edition.

Rules for Writers by Diana Hacker, Nancy Sommers pdf free download

Description:

Rules for Writers by Diana Hacker, Nancy Sommers pdf free download.

When students routinely use their handbook in the course, they see its value, find that it’s a faster way to get answers than search engines like Google, learn to rely on it as a reference, and are more likely to achieve the goals of the course. And when that handbook is Rules for Writers, you can be sure the advice they find is practical and reliable—with help for composing and revising, writing arguments, analyzing texts, using grammar and punctuation correctly, and working with sources. In revising the eighth edition, Nancy Sommers has woven a new emphasis on reading critically throughout the first section of the handbook, introduced advice for analyzing multimodal texts, and added help for public speaking. New practical Writing Guides support students working through college assignments in a variety of genres. And new peer review advice helps students effectively comment on drafts and apply feedback to revisions of their own work. All of these improvements help student writers—but they also save you time and effort. You can draw from Rules for Writers for planning class discussions, conducting in-class workshops, and providing feedback on student work that they can easily apply. Rules for Writers even comes with a complete instructor’s manual, Teaching with Hacker Handbooks, with stepped-out lesson plans to customize and sample assignments, syllabi, and rubrics from your peers.

Review

“One thing I felt was a helpful tool was the writing handbook. It helped me get an idea on how my writing should look for different prompts and it helped out the most on my citing. I will keep my handbook throughout college for sure. I used it for every paper I wrote this semester in all my classes, even in civil engineering.” – Scott Wedgeworth, Merrimack College “I like the affordability, accessibility, and convenience of Rules for Writers. This little book is packed with useful information for novice and seasoned writers.” – Elizabeth Joseph, Tarrant County College “I like its price, its length, and the fact that it has very little excess in its explanations.” – Marylynne Diggs, Clark College

Description:

Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry solutions manual by Nelson, D., and Cox, M. Boyle pdf free download.

Clear writing and illustrations…Clear explanations of difficult concepts…Clear communication of the ways in biochemistry is currently understood and practiced. For over 35 years, in edition after bestselling edition, Principles of Biochemistry has put those defining principles into practice, guiding students through a coherent introduction to the essentials of biochemistry without overwhelming them.

The new edition brings this remarkable text into a new era. Like its predecessors, Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry, Sixth Edition strikes a careful balance of current science and enduring concepts, incorporating a tremendous amount of new findings, but only those that help illustrate biochemistry’s foundational principles. With this edition, students will encounter new information emerging from high throughput DNA sequencing, x-ray crystallography, and the manipulation of genes and gene expression, and other techniques.  In addition, students will see how contemporary biochemistry has shifted away from exploring metabolic pathways in isolation to focusing on interactions among pathways.  They will also get an updated understanding of the relevance of biochemistry to the study of human disease (especially diabetes) as well as the important role of evolutionary theory in biochemical research.

These extensive content changes, as well as new art and powerful new learning technologies make this edition ofLehninger Principles of Biochemistry the most impressive yet.

I actually really enjoy reading this book while taking my biochemistry course in college. It explains difficult concepts very well and the diagrams/figures are awesome for understanding different biochemical processes such as glycolysis.
